If you are unsure about what materials to buy, please bring a sketchbook and charcoal pencil to the first class. LucSculpture also has some in-house supplies such as paper, pencils and erasers that are available for us to use in class.


  • SketchBook, coil bound. My suggestion is either Canson XL Mixed Media (Blue Cover) or Robert Bateman Sketchbook as the paper has a good ‘tooth’ that is excellent for many techniques and results.
  • 1-2 single sheets of a mid-tone pastel paper ie. Mi-Teintes 9”x12” grey of your choice.


  • General’s Charcoal Pencil 6B  
  • General’s White Charcoal Pencil
